The HDF Group engages in a variety of open and non-disclosure
projects with companies, national laboratories, and research
organizations, as well as in-house projects. A subset of projects
demonstrating the breadth of our activities is highlighted below.
The BioHDF project is a collaborative effort to develop portable, scalable, next-generation sequencing (NGS) data storage technologies in HDF5.
HDF5 has many potential applications in the growing field of bioinformatics.
- HDF Compass
HDF Compass is a new viewer for HDF5 and related formats.
- HDF Server
HDF Server is a Python-based web service that can be used to send and receive HDF5 data using an HTTP-based REST interface.
- HDF5 and .NET
A complete set of Platform Invoke (P/Invoke) declarations for HDF5.
- HDF4 Mapping
XML schema and tools for reading HDF4 files without relying on the HDF4 library.
- NCSA Systems
The HDF Group supports HDF4 and HDF5 on some of NCSA's high end systems.
PSH5X is a Windows PowerShell module for HDF5.
PyHexad is a Python-based Excel add-in for HDF5 that can be used to read or write data in HDF5 files from Microsoft Excel on Windows.
- Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS)
NOAA and NASA rely on software from The HDF Group to archive satellite data from the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) and to make the data easier to study.
Concurrent Read/Write File Access
The European synchrotron particle accelerator community and The HDF Group have been working together to develop the capability for multiple reader processes to read from an HDF5 file while another process writes to the file.
HDF5 Support of Advanced Scientific Computing (ASC).
No company has capitalized on the power and flexibility of HDF better than Boeing, which uses HDF in wide range of applications.
We identified the role that HDF5 can play as a data management platform for battlefield military operations and developed a prototype geoinformatic data management system based on HDF5.
- NASA Earth Science Data and Information
System (through September 2015)
The NASA Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) project ensures that The HDF Group can provide high quality support and services for the use of HDF software in EOS mission.
- HDF4 Mapping Prototype
XML schema and tools were developed for reading HDF4 files without relying on the HDF4 Library.
- HDF5 AIP
HDF5 Archival Information Package (AIP) is a package for submission or archival storage of HDF5 files.
- HDF5 iRODS
A client-server model that provides interactive and efficient access to remote HDF5 files at an iRODS server.
Software to access HDF4 data via OPeNDAP's Data Access Protocol.
Software to access HDF5 data via OPeNDAP's Data Access Protocol.
- National Archives and Records
Investigated scientific data management applications with electronic records.
- NCSA SRB
The HDF-SRB model is a client-server model that provides interactive and efficient access to remote HDF5 files.
- NOAA SDS
The HDF4-to-HDF5 NOAA SDS Project enables the HDF4-to-HDF5 utility from H4H5TOOLS. to convert HDF-EOS2 files into NetCDF4-compliant HDF5 files.
Pmodels focused on support for I/O in a massively parallel environment, and included both research and technology transfer activities.
- Fast Output through
Direct Chunk Writing
DECTRIS and The HDF Group worked together to overcome a writing-data-to-disk bottleneck.
